I just got back from this tour after a week, I just cannot describe how amazing it was on this tour. We got to see so many cool places that I thought I would never visit in my entire life. The tour guide Andy was extremely helpful and funny too, he kept us all entertained. I really hope I could just take these tours every day of my life, but sadly that is not possible. Anyway, the dolphin cruise was the part for me on this tour. Who would have thought, I would take these wonderful photos with dolphins. It was just amazing. Thank you.

I am very much into travelling different places. In last vocation, I planned to visit US, I chose this plan because it covers areas of my interest. I experience with this tour company was no doubt very good. Tour guides were very cooperativeand worth knowledge historical places, overall tour was planned in a good way, one day tour was slightly changed due to the weather condition. Houston tour was very informative specially trip to NASA.  Night Tour in San Antonio was very relaxing and amazing, it was the best time.

After spending 5 years in Europe, I just got back to my home state of Texas. I thought I should take a tour of the places that I want to see ever since I was a kid. I’m usually cautious about going on a bus tour with a company that I don’t even know, but these guys are professional. They guide me through each process, and to be honest, this company has the best prices out there in the market, and they still provide way more than we paid for. I’m really satisfied with your services, I would definitely recommend this to my friends. Also, hotel choices were great, thumbs up for that.

We remember the hot summer days of Texas when we were just wandering the Houston city, on the same note, this week-tour was the best experience for me and friend. We have had decided to board on this bus tour in the summer. On the first day, we spend hours driving to Austin city where we saw the state capitol building, took some pictures, then we visited the museum, and so on. The second was a lot better than the first, we slept well in a decent hotel and we had all the energy to put on our day of the tour. The second day of the tour was great because we spend a great time in San Antonio. It was like the Las Vegas of Texas, the city is beautiful, the people and the landmarks and attractions are always drawing the huge crowds from all around the country. I was worried in the start that the tour might not be so enjoyable with my friend but it turned out to be the best tour experiences with the professional team, and I would definitely love to see more on the tours!

My husband and I had a wonderful time on this bus trip. Whole journey was amazing but I can never forget the day I spent in Houston.It was fun experience watching the dolphin, we sat on a boat with one other family, seven passengers in all. Our guiders were very knowledgeable of the area and full of information.

Taking the family out on the vacations has been a huge deal for me and my family since our family consists of more ten people. It’s my and my wife’s job to plan up to the tour for the family and believe it has been a great fatigue managing everything for the tour until I found this great bus tour company on the internet. We found this complete seven-day bus tour which included all the great places in the couth and they seemed to be offering reasonable pricing for us which included the hotel, transportation, stops, and more. Speaking on behalf of my family members and myself, I’m proud to conclude the fact that this bus tour is the best way to board any tour around the country. They offer so many packages of tours, we could just pick our favorite tours and book it online. Thanks for providing us with this great bus tour for our holiday break. I would definitely anyone looking for a great tour, this is a perfect bus tour jam-packed with a bundle of fun and activities to do. Miss the days on the tour!

The first impression of this tour was getting lazier and lazier, then I got a little worried that if ever going to have fun or not? Gladly as we got out of the Dallas and Austin, the real tour started then, the San Antonio, Houston, French Quarter, and on top of all the Steamboat cruise was the best cruise I have ever experienced, there was live jazz music on the yacht, and we were had a great meal around the breathtaking landscape views of the city, I would appreciate the efforts of tour hosting person, we kept will all the passengers and sort out everyone’s need and guided us about this bus tour. All the places we visited were exceptional especially the Nasa space center in Houston. They have a huge part of genuine space rockets and occasionally, the rocket launch draws the attention of the visitors at the museum. Nasa is keeping all the good work and collecting all the possible information of the universe, I think the museum made me realize how far the NASA has reached discovering the universe. There is so much for everyone on the tour, it was a wonderful bus tour from Dallas!

My wife and I have been to Dallas for about a decade from now, and believe me ever since then, Texas has changed and grew a lot. We always try to get the true nature of Texas, that in fact, is quite fascinating when it comes to the cowboy style culture. The bus was supposed to begin the tour from Dallas, therefore we reached there the night before just so we don’t miss the bus seat by any mean. The bus then drove us straight to Austin. I liked the way they first took us to the state capital city, that was an absolutely wonderful day in the city. Anyways, I would definitely suggest that buses could be much better and innovative rather than traveling on those old-style buses. The tour pricing is a bit high as compared to what they offered us on the tour. Fortunately, we got a great discount for our second tour on both the bus seats and we were lucky enough to have the best time our lives on this bus tour. Love the people from Texas, and their hospitality is appreciable. Love from Canada!

I guess that’s not mentioned anywhere to come all the way prepared on this 7-day bus tour. My kids and I were all prepared for this journey, we packed the walking shoes and clothes because we figured the amount of traveling, we were going to do, also that’s one the reason we happened to fully enjoy our time. We made stops for food, and we mostly spend our time exploring and visiting the popular landmarks which were mentioned in our schedule. The was this guy named, Tony, who served as the Tour Host, basically he was there for the assistance of the travelers on the bus, rather he spends more time focusing on collecting more tips for the rich people on our tour bus, but I don’t mind since he did a great job of providing us with great hotels, guidance, and so much more. The tour host was such a great person. Oak Alley Plantation needs a lot of care and renovation because it looks like that historical building is going to keep up for long, the plantations and gardens around the palace are absolutely awe-inspiring.

it was not much fun for us to visit the best of Texas, as we have been living around the state for several years, but I can’t understand how great it was to see the best Texas for the people who never been here and at least never knew this unique culture of Texas. Although, it was so great being out at the San Antonio in its charming nightlife. Thanks for the great management of the tour, we decided to spend more time in Houston and see around the famous landmarks there. As though we spent two days of the tour in Houston, and yet more time in Houston is always a great idea since there is so much to do, explore the eateries were just fine. I don't agree that the Crowne Plaza is selling the best hotel services around the country, rather we experienced the lack of services at the hotel, which wasn’t a massive deal rather we slept quite alright in our hotel rooms. It was surprising to see the diversity of people on the buses, yet got along and enjoyed the tour to the fullest.
